very big very fast if not crowded

“One of the best Views and unique that joins Europe and Asia”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

This bridge was first built in 1973 and renovated since then. If you take a hop on hop off bus you can cross the the two continents taking wonderful pictures. If you come to this world once, you should cross this bridge enjoying the beautiful view.

“Great Spectacle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

You don't realise how big this bridge is till you've actually seen it! The setting is spectacular. The bridge spans majestically across the deep blue waters that flow between the Black Sea and the Sea of Marmara. The valley either side is populated with lovely looking villas with slanting red roofs. Traffic can be quite congested, especially during peak hours. There were vendors standing literally in the middle of the roadway on either sides selling bottles of water. A bit harrowing if you are accustomed to more regulated traffic conditions. Do allow plenty of extra time if you are aiming to get to a meeting, like I was that day. They are building the 3rd Bosphorus bridge now which is a hybrid long span structure and will hopefully help in easing the traffic situation. A must see if you are a long span bridge enthusiast. I found it utterly spectacular!

“The link between Asia and Europe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

This bridge connects two continents and thus is very special! You can enjoy the view of this bridge at night from almost anywhere in the city but the best view is from Ortakoy! So go to Ortakoy for some amazing views of this bridge and some memorable photography!
